I did not know so much about tulips, a tulip was just a tulip for me. But a learned a lot here, there are so many colours, shapes, it opened my eyes. Here they have put together all the different kinds and I had a good look at them.
This is my first macro photo, did not know it was on my camera (shame on me).
Look at the funny milled edges, had never seen these.
With two different colours.
And this is my sweetie in the pink. There is a small path between the tulips, so he did not trampled them. If you want to know more about the tulip history look here.
And at the end we had a nice drink in the garden and enjoyed the incredible hot weather 26 degrees Celcius. It has not been so hot at this time of the year since 1949! It is also very dry for a time and we had a big peat-moor fire in the north-east part of the country.
